Helping my mother with stage 4 bone cancer. Please help cover funds related to financial bills.

My name is Jen. My mom Kathy has had a very hard life and things just keep getting worse. My dad passed away suddenly three years ago and my mom was supporting two children in high school. She had just battled breast cancer and had a mastectomy and was recovering. During her testing, it was found that she has bad arthritis in her back causing her pain, as well as needing both hips replaced. She dealt through the pain to work full time and support her family. After almost 10 years, she was laid off. Her income was cut and was struggling on unemployment. In the mean time, her hips got worse and she wasn't able to walk. She has no insurance and couldn't afford to go to the doctor. She finally got so sick, not eating, not moving from the bed and lost a lot of weight. I finally called the ambulance and she has been in the hospital since 9/5/12. We found out today in addition to needing two hip replacements, she has pneumonia and stage 4 bone cancer throughout her entire body. She tried for disability and it was denied. Her unemployment has run out. I am trying to pay her bills as well as my own and it's VERY expensive. My mom deserves a good life, she's been through so much and I'd love to be able to comfort her mind at least about not losing her house and getting medical bills paid. Any help, kind words, donations are greatly appreciated. My mom is wonderful and I don't want to lose her. Thank you so much.
